1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Intimacy [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
Nothing like Kureishi's novel, a real disappointment, boring, depressing, low quality cinematography, lots of graphic sex but that's not enough to make this worth seeing.


Waiting for Sunrise
Waiting for Sunrise
by William Boyd
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Pace picks up, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Waiting for Sunrise (Paperback)
I found it somewhat slow at first, quickly picked up, slumped a bit in the middle, then picked up pace increasingly in the last third or so, so much that I barely put it down for this last part, a real page turner! The ending was somewhat of an anti-climax in the sense it was not as dramatic as it could have been, and as with Restless, the protagonist never gets to entirely escape the damage inflicted upon him by malevolent others.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Beiruti woman's life, 8 May 2013

This review is from: Caramel [DVD] (2007) (DVD)
Not the usual war / terrorism Lebanon set film, but a look at the lives of a group of women in a Beirut beauty salon. As director and lead Nadine Labaki writes at the end, this is 'to my Lebanon' not the one usually portrayed as a perpetual war zone. Funny and moving.

This review is from: Little White Lies [DVD] (DVD)
A great ensemble French cast portraying the lives and loves, happiness and tragedies of a group of friends one summer. Tears of both laughter and sadness streaming down my face by the end of the film.

Great concept - the story of the couple is told in 5 scenes in reverse chronological order. Good story and lovely soundtrack.

The all time great series packaged in a box, for you to catch up with the Friends whenever you feel like it.

If you've never seen this film, watch it. Then watch it another time and you'll see everything from a different perspective. Spooky and moving at the same time.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Run, Fat Boy, Run [DVD] (DVD)
The 'Fat Boy' comes good in the end in this lovely comedy directed by David Schwimmer and featuring his former Friend's recurring character colleague, Hank Azaria, as the 'villain'.


Lord of War [DVD]

Price: £3.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you think, 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lord of War [DVD] (DVD)
Nicolas Cage's character is an anti-hero, but one who manages to garner our sympathy to an extent, a soul who becomes increasingly lost in an ethically devoid quagmire of blood, war and billions.


My Name is Khan [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars A film everyone should see, 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Name is Khan [DVD] (DVD)
This film is utterly compelling viewing. So moving I'm in tears at the end every time I watch it. It tackles powerful, controversial and topical themes. A brilliant Bollywood-US product.
